My experience
I was 15 mins late, but it did not create any issueAn auditorium sought of place was given to us so that it can accommodate at least 400students, 452 were eligible. Cognizant came at around 9am, and when I saw the entireteam I was simply stunned, more than 35 people came, out of which 33 wereinterviewer (I came to know about them before the interview). The T.P.O of the FIEMintroduced Mr. N Ghosal, the HR Manager of Cognizant.Mr. N Ghosal, introduced himself and started off with the ppt session, it was damn goodand inspiringAfter 30-45 mins of ppt session we were asked to get ready for the Aptitude test, aconsultancy named Meritrake came in with a team of more than 20 people and dividedthe entire group of students into several rooms, they had taken every possible measureso that no unfair means occur.A form (data sheet) was given to fill-up, followed by two question papers (2-sections)Total 55 questions were there, 60 mins time, 2 sections, 1-logical and quantitative 2-Based on English, no Negative marking but sectional cut-offs were there.Aptitude result was declared by 1.30 pm, and panels were allotted to the selectedcandidates, there were 33 panels, and 5-6 students were allotted to eachI was in panel 1.The interview session began, 1:1 interview, Technical and HR was combined, and thesingle man that was sitting on the other side was more than enough to make us realizethat he was from CTS and the questions won’t be as smooth as we were thinkingI was waiting for my turn to come; seriously, I was quite tensed and nervous though myface did not reflect that. At that moment of time I was completely blank, I could noteven remember the syntax for inheritance in C++, anyways I had to wait till 5.30pm, asthe interviewer was taking a lot of time with a single candidate, so you can imagine howsweet the interview session could be, sitting with the interviewer for than 30mins,minimum, gradually I started to make up my mind that I have to face the person on theother side of the desk, and if I get tensed then everything would be in a mess, actually Iwas not tensed, neither was i nervous, it was a different feeling, which you can only feelwhen your waiting outside
ROOM.When my name was called, it was near about 5.40pmMe : Sir, may I come inX: yah, sure (he had a smiling face)Me: Good Afternoon sir (I was standing with my bag on one shoulder, and a file in myhand)X: yah, have your seat, be comfortable(I took my seat, kept my bag on the floor, and the file on my lap)X: (with a smile on his face) so you are Shyam, from JISCE?Me: yes sirX: (he called out two names, they were also from my college and asked me) who is thetopper? Me: sir all are unique in their own way, but if you talk about academics I have topped thelast 5 semestersX: so you are the topper? (smiled again)Me: yes sir till the 5
semesterX: show me your certificates, class X and XII (I gave him the original), make sure thatyou put back all the certificates safely(He started calculating my percentages, one by one) and said all are perfectX: you have passed out class XII from CBSE? I am also from CBSE

Me: which school sir?X: Kendriya Vidyalay, Alipore, (smiled) I have passed out class 10 in 2000, so where doyou stay?Me: NaihatiX: hmm nice place, so what are your hobbies Shyam?Me: (told) (and he continued writing everything in his evaluation sheet)X: (going through the data sheet that I have filled up in the morning) you like datastructureMe: yes sir, we had DS in our 3
semX: ok (he gave a blank A4 sheet and wrote an array of 6 elements) sort the arrayMe: which technique sir? X: anything of your choiceMe: (after sorting the array by Bubble sorting technique) sir doneX: ok let me see (going through my code) no this will not work!! (returned the paperback to me)Me: (surprisingly) why sir? (I went through my code,….but couldn’t find any mistakes)(Gave it back to him) sir it will workX: (again going through my code) no it won’t, ok let us do a dry runMe: (eagerly waiting for him to point out my mistake) yes sirX: oh! My mistake, I didn’t notice the other loop (he overlooked my outer loop) it willwork (gave a positive smile)X: Can you tell me its time complexity?Me: (told, a complete wrong guess, I was not sure) (he did not say anything)X: what projects have you done?Me: (told)X: do you know Linked lists?Me: yes sirX: ok, have you heard of circular, doubly, circular-doubly linked lists?Me: yah sir, sureX: how can I search an element from the linked list? (Passed that paper to me again)Me: shall I write the code?X: your choice, I just need to understandMe: (I wrote the code, defined a structure for linear linked list, and defined a function forsearching the element) ( I was taking a bit time and I looked up once to see what washe doing)X: take your time (gave a pleasant smile)(I continued with my ‘searching’ function)(After completing, I looked up again, found him busy writing something, so I startedchecking my code, if there are some errors)Me: sir I have done itX: oh , let me have a look (going through my code) yah goodX: what changes would you make if I ask you to do the same for doubly linked list?Me: (made the changes)X: (with a impressive smile) your code is ok but it could have been much simpler. Whatis recursion?Me: (told)X: write down a recursive function to print the fibonacci series in JavaMe: (feeling a bit tensed, started off)(Finished writing the code, I didn’t print the a and b as 0 in the beginning, I took a=-1and b=1, and gave him the sheet back) sir done.X: (checked out my code) why did you take a= -1 and b=1?
Me: (explained him)X: (he looked impressed) (he took the paper back, wrote a small code snippet) what willbe output of the following? (The code was written in C++, a bit tricky)Me: (I started solving it, wrote few steps) (suddenly he took back the paper and said)
